    We're pretty sure that she's female but then again we know next to nothing. [​IMG]

    sorry, but I'm leaning toward cockerel. That's a wide band of white on the wings, and the legs look solid yellow, not dark down the front. Those are male indicators [​IMG]

    But, it's early and I'm not positive. How old is the bird now? I'd say post again in maybe 3 weeks and we should have a definitive answer by then.

    He'll be a fine roo. Leg color and visible comb forming tell the story here. I just raised 14 of those little birdies.

    I'm leaning towards roo just because of the solid white line. If the pattern looks more speckled than barred in a couple weeks then you have a pullet. If it starts to look like its white with black lines you have a cockerel.
